After you’ve got your website designed and online the next step is to get it in front of as many people as possible, especially if you are a business.  This can actually be the most difficult part of the web development process, so we’ll cover a few details here along with some tips and suggestions for getting your website noticed in Nova Scotia.

Create a Unique Design:

web design tips and tricksIf you have a new website that looks great and you want to get a lot of traffic and links, then there are countless web design gallery sites out there such as CSS Mania, Best Web Gallery, SiteInspire, CssDsgn that exist for the purpose of showcasing great web design companies. You can submit your site for consideration and if it gets approved you can get instant exposure and links. The website traffic that you get directly from these galleries will mostly be other designers who are browsing the galleries for inspiration.

Despite the fact that these visitors might not fall into your target audience this can still be a helpful thing because of the networking factor. It can be a way to get valuable backlinks to your site that will eventually help with SEO (search engine optimization). Also, many of the websites that get showcased in these galleries will also be showcased on various other web design blogs as a result, leading to even more backlinks and website traffic.

In order to get backlinks and website traffic from web gallery sites and web design blogs you’ll need to create a well design website high in quality that stands out from the competition. Take your time and don’t rush thru with the web design part. Then, when it comes to submitting your website it can be a little time consuming so get a professional social media company to do the work for you at minimal costs. If you don’t mind spending a few advertising dollars to save time, you can pay for a service SocialFanExpert.com to do the job of Social Media Marketing as well as SEO services for you.

Web Design Cape Breton – Good link building techniques

Once the main practice of search engine optimization, poor link building continues to come under attack by Google – and for good reason. Over the years, many SEO experts have used misleading, black hat techniques to acquire links and move up in rank. It wasn’t uncommon that white hat SEO practitioners would have to compete at much higher levels to combat bad link building practices. Not so any more with the updates over the past two years.

How can companies adjust with the “new” set of .EDU link building rules? Here are 10 ways you can begin to link build differently.

Build your link profile from big to small

Link building used to be quantity over quality. With quantity, websites achieved a lot of links from very niche sites. These sites can only send traffic on occasion and very little traffic at that. The better method now is to go after broader websites, which have more traffic. Casting a wider net will help you land more traffic and drive search ranking.

professional link building techniques

Content, content, content

The creation of quality, relevant content is the cornerstone of any link building program in Canada or abroad. Content can be created both on your website or as a separate piece that lives off your website. The more people like the content, the more they will read it and share it – musts to drive links and traffic. Content does not have to be text, although in some cases text is preferred. Content can be photographs, video, infographics, ebooks – the list goes on.

Create authority

With the information that passes on the Internet, it is hard to decipher what is the best information. Companies need to lead in the ‘expert’ arena. By providing a consistent voice on topics appropriate to your company – via content, social media, PR – it will help distinguish the content you produce and help the chances of your content being shared.

Provide opportunities to share content

If a company is producing the quality, relevant content mentioned above, it is highly valuable. Thus, companies need to make sure, on their website, it is easily sharable. Placing social media, social news, RSS and email sign-ups for your content makes it very easy for those reading the content to share it. It is extremely easy to implement and should not be overlooked for your website.

Distribute content

“If you build it, they will come” does not apply to link building or a website. A brand or company must tell as many people as they can about their website. One of the ways to do that is through distribution of content. It is not enough to create it and allow others to share it; companies must evangelize their content to their advocates and new customers. Content can be shared via email, social media (Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Pinterest, Instagram), social news sites like Digg, Reddit, and StumbleUpon, industry sites, and blogs. Types of content, where it is distributed and frequency should be tested to determine which means of content distribution work best.

Get others to talk about you

Why do the hard work when others will do it for you? Promoting a product or service to distributors, such as bloggers, will help increase the visibility of a company’s offerings. And, while promoting the product or service, companies an request bloggers link to their website for link building.

Google+

Google+ can provide a very necessary means to build links. Using Google+ to establish authority on a website or content via the “rel=author” tag helps content to appear higher in search results. Distributing content via Google+ is a great way to indicate a company is associated with a particular topic and help drive traffic back to the site. Using all of the tools Google and Google+ have to offer – Google Places, ratings and reviews, and so forth – can help improve the ability for users to link out to a company’s website. It is not a coincidence Google search results favor Google+ pages and attributes.

PR

PR can go a long way in driving back links to a company website, in particular high page rank websites. The ability of PR specialist in generating news and connecting with journalist makes them extremely valuable asset to a company’s link building campaign. Traditional journalist writing articles on the Web have a large established audience. A link within an article written by a journalist is truly the holy grail of link building.

Online press releases are still a way to drive back links. However, the press release must be newsworthy. This does not mean only a company’s biggest announcements will work online. However, general information is not press worthy. Topical information surrounding a company can best be used in articles, ebooks, whitepapers and the like. Thriving companies have news occurring all the time. They should harness the power of news to build links and traffic.

Media

Media placements are a great way to drive links to a website. Media, via banner ads, have been used to drive traffic and links to a website. Now, paid search and social media advertising could be used to create links to a website. Also, media does not have to promote a website. It can promote other pieces of content and help drive links in that manner. For example, paid search can be used to promote a company video on YouTube or an ebook for download. This method may be short lived.

However, the goal to build awareness and help jump start some of the above activities is not.

YouTube

If a company has video assets, they should make use of YouTube link building. An optimized YouTube channel and video description should contain links back the company’s website. YouTube is the second largest search engine behind Google. Therefore, placing links on videos within the space absolutely help in driving links. There are other video placement sites that should be considered as well. Since YouTube has a large potential to drive links, it is imperative to effectively optimize the assets within the channel.

Link building is not dead. We just need to switch the focus from building links to our websites to driving traffic to our websites. This switch in an activity will change a companies thinking and actions but ultimately result in the same thing – more links, more traffic and the movement of strategic keywords up in the SERP.
